Crowns!

I don't even know anymore.. Everything has changed so much. I understand what junior year hell is like for everyone now, even though it's probably toned down more for home-schoolers. :)

Still alive! God has done so much for me in the past couple months. It's truly been the best of my life so far, even though it's been more stressful and worrisome than ever, and I haven't had time to blog(so many spammers lately!) or go to dance.

At my girl scout GAM competition, we got the same(high) score, place(third!), and pennant(Clipper!) as last year. Which is amazing, and I had a lot of fun. We had a really good sea shanty(song) which we worked hard on, but we got the same score as last year when we basically made up the whole thing last minute. Which we were pretty upset about but oh well.

I was really happy when I got my SAT score back! I studied really hard and got 2260 on the first try, so I won't have to retake it. Got an 8 on the essay though.....wrote about Jane Eyre, Speaker for the Dead, and Animal Farm. I probably should have picked more diverse examples and not sounded like I was barfing up english class with some random anthropological science fiction thrown in.

Unfortunately, I realized that I had SAT subject tests the next week and I had to take them. I was originally signed up for Math IIC and Chemistry. I've been studying math really hard the past couple days, but yesterday I decided that I wouldn't be ready to take the test on Saturday. I really want a 800 so I need to study hard. It's easier to get an 800 on Math II than on the regular SAT math. Well, the math itself is more difficult, but the curve is easier. You can miss 8 and get 800, whereas on the SAT missing one will set you back at 780. So about 11% of Math IIC'ers get an 800. I SHALL BE ONE OF THEMMM. So I'm taking that in october, and taking Literature on Saturday instead. Last...test...then I shall be freee

Went shopping for my workout room renovation project! Hopefully I'll get that done this summer. It was funny because we went to home depot, where everything was $$$$$$$$ and then we went to a home improvement resale store and everything was so cheap and we found some big mirrors(attached to mirror doors :/) for like $10 when at home depot it was $60 and lol. Someone on craigslist also is going to sell me her treadmill for only $25 which is really good cause I still need to raise money.

Hopefully, I'll also get to work in the biology lab and psychiatric ward of UCI this summer on science research, which is exciting! Slogging through paperwork now.

This song is addicting. Showed it to my cousin and he said it was freaky...he should be glad I didn't show him the actual video for the song which creeps me out even more XD.

my fangirl obsessions go in cycles...this week, it's totally Heroes of Olympus/Percy Jackson(again)

There's this amazing artist on deviantart...burdge-bug...who does AMAZING Percy Jackson, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, Maximum Ride, and even HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE fanart. Now, we need to get her to read Artemis Fowl...XD.

Anyways, here are some of my favorites of hers.

eeeeeeeeeeeeee
I kind of want to pull a Ms. Black and blast Jason right off the tapestry. There's some speculation to whether or not Annabeth will be on the Argo II. I kind of don't want her to be, so Nico can join instead. Then again, if Nico is already in Rome(as speculated at the end of Neptune) there's still room.  GAH RR WHY MUST YOU TORMENT US SO



































love this scene...Senatus Populusque Romanus FTW.

Which do you think is cooler? Camp Half Blood or Camp Jupiter? Camp Jupiter definitely has a more efficient way of doing things(separating by cohort instead of parentage, sending large groups instead o…

Ciel Phantomhive vs. Artemis Fowl

Don't laugh. XD
The similarities between the two characters are so distinct and obvious that comparison is inevitable for anyone who's read/watched both series. I seriously thought when I first noticed Black Butler(more popularly referred to as Kuroshitsuji) that it was literally an anime adaption of Artemis Fowl.  Other people have read Artemis Fowl and thought "CIEL HAS A CLONE??!?"
So I thought I'd outline some of the differences and analyze who would win. XD
Similarities:
Appearance:  This is the first similarity, and one of the most major, because if they didn't look so darn alike I don't think the comparison would have been as striking. The above picture of Artemis is a fanart, because there aren't really any good pictures of Artemis, and the manga style makes it more obvious. They are both from the British Isles and have black hair and blue eyes. Both of them lose/change/switch an eye resulting in two different colors. 
Circumstance: They both s…

updates on life(aka excuses to post tumblr gifs)

If I had to describe my life in one word right now, it'd be cold. Brr.


Let's see..what's happening?

I got my back bend kickover from le ground in acro. It's awesome. :) I never thought I'd be able to do it XD

Of course, it's not with straight legs(yet). And I don't hit my splits in the middle. Come to think of it, it's actually sort of a back flop-over.



I read Skeleton Key and Eagle Strike(next two Alex Rider books) last night. The series has gotten better, but it still has the same problems. Just like Suzanne Collins makes the simplest events seem chilling and scary, the numerous random deaths in Alex Rider are just like "meh...whatever."

They all still have similar plots. Such as:

1. The book opens with some sort of mysterious circumstance. Usually an assasination or an exchange where one of the members gets stabbed in the back(sometimes literal, sometimes not) and killed. Either way, someone usually dies.
2. Alex Rider is hanging out drinkin…
